Summary of Objective Implementation Status
The County Administrator’s Office (CAO) conducted an initial review of routine administrative procedures and workflows within the department that could be streamlined. Most of the procedures identified in this review are connected to purchasing. In a related project, the CAO is currently leading a countywide Procurement Assessment (see Organizational Excellence Objective 3.1.5). Staff anticipate that the Procurement Assessment will result in recommendations that may change the aforementioned procurement procedures. Therefore, staff recommend waiting until the completion of the Procurement Assessment before moving forward with streamlining these procedures. In the meantime, the CAO is continuing to identify and document routine administrative procedures for potential streamlining.
